My last day in Port au Prince

I am now on my way home. I’ll stop briefly in Miami and will be on my way to San Francisco.  Home sounds great.  I been away for a month – sleeping in tent, living in heat and dust.  I miss clean air, going hiking, kayaking, and running. I miss people I left behind. 

On Thursday, I went to Leogane to visit a new site that the organization opened recently. It was a wonderful visit . Besides few problems (no gas to run a generator, no running water due to a leakage in water pipe), the house where staff and volunteers live is very nice. Actually, it’s quite a luxury to live in a house as most of aid workers live in tents here. Many houses have been destroyed here during the earthquake. I took few photos on my way to Leogone (about 2 hrs away from Port au Prince):

Open sewage in Haiti is common. Approaching rainy season will makes life here really difficult:
